Can't forget about the matte paint! The comp edition comes with a few smaller things too. For example it comes with a different steering wheel, more carbon fiber inside, ceramic exhaust tips, etc.

I feel like I went too dark with the tail lights, so I might have have to fix that. BMW only built 40 of these cars so I want to keep her different.

Agreed with others; lose the tails. They look awesome stock!
It's the competition edition in honor of 40 years of the BMW M in North America. Hence why they only built 40 of the car.

Color looks great. Cant wait to see what else is you plan to add. I think i would go back to OEM tails or lighter though as well. In the end YOU have to love it though

Very nice! Saw one at Laurel BMW a few months back here in Chicagoland, its sick. I'd go regular tails, color match side reflector, bmw CF performance goodies or that Revinora R-CRT lip that rob_s2K has. My cents.

I may be in the minority, but I think you just killed the look of the car.

Frozen colors with tinted tails and blacked out reflector? It just does not go IMO. Cheapens the look.


I remember when the tinted tail lights was cool on the boxy s10 pickups from the 90's.

Car looks really good. But, just like everyone else has said. Lose the tint dude, LCI tails look cool enough

The LCI tails make the car look modern. The tinted + matte look on your tails just made the car look instantly older. You should peel those off. If you really want to tint them go very light and gloss. Your paint is already matte and looks amazing, making the rest of the details matte will just make the car look like it sat in dust. Besides that, ca is gorgeous. Paint choice is phenomenal. I love the black ZCP wheels. Have you looked into the BMW Performance Carbon kit (splitters, mirrors, trunk spoiler)? It would look fantastic on your car, like your CF roof does now. Enjoy that badboy!

Man, your car is really rare (and beautiful). Just keep it looking like stock, it's such a different/rare combo, straight from BMW! Since no cars come with tinted tails from the factory, it almost makes it seem like you might have added all those non-standard cosmetics, yourself. Of course we know about the frozen paint, and GTS wheels, but if I came up on those black tails I would think someone just got carried away on the entire car.
